Washington, Oct. B. Tho revenue
cutter Taboma, named In honor of
the City of Taconia, will be launched
at the yard of the New York Ship
Building Company, Cumden, N. J.,
Saturday, October 10. MIbs Grace
Clark Kahler, ot Tacoma; will act
as sponsor of the vessel. The event
will be especially notable as It will
form a part of the Founders week
celebration at Philadelphia. The
Tahoma takes the Indian name In
stead of the present spelling of the
City of Destiny, because a naval
cruiser has already been named In
honor of Tacoma and It was neces
sary to avoid a confusion of names.
The Tahoma will be one of the
crack vessels of the revenue cutter
service, especially for long distance
cruising, as she has a coal capacity
of 225 tons and a fresh water ca
pacity of 65 tons.
